So since we don’t buy any of those things, we’re in. In fact we buy almost nothing except books and I try to not even buy those. Bookmooch anyone?
But, one caveat for us. We have to buy a new cell phone this month. I’ve dropped the Nokia (virgin prepaid) a few too many times and the last time it went flying and the top came off. I managed to get it back on and it still rings (oddly) but after you click the answer button (nothing shows on the screen) no one sound goes anywhere. So … new phone. I just put $25 on too. Otherwise I likely wouldn’t bother. Or, prolly our SO would make us becuase we have a 30 minute drive to and from work and he worries about us on the road.
